She will again jump from eight in the Final, with her trainer noting he would have preferred the other end of the box draw.
“She will need to begin pretty well to get around that first bend out of trouble, it might be a bit tough in the Final,” Gallaway said.
“She has run a 5.50 second early split in her career there, which is pretty quick, so we will see what happens.
“It was good in the heat, she got her head in front down the back and then got a bit of a check and went a little bit further and got another bump, which put her off balance a little bit.
“She trialled good on the Sunday up there as well, she broke 29.86 seconds in that.
“We will need to reassess her plans following this race on Thursday night, as she has been pulling up sound after all her runs, even the one down at Wentworth Park.
“She freshens up pretty quick and came home pretty good.
“The Flying Amy might be one we consider, or one of those feature events.”
Before making the trip north to the Sunshine State, Little Zephyr went around in the TAB Million Dollar Chase Semi Finals and with plenty of rain about the Grafton area since, she has not been able to do much racing or trialling since.
Following her strong performance at Maitland in early March, Gallaway and his partner Julie King’s phones were hot with people looking to buy the budding star.
Queensland trainer Darren Russell was one who attempted to throw in an offer for the bitch, as many others did, but the kennel knocked them all back.
Before the Maitland outing, she went close to upsetting another star on the rise - Black Comanche – so there was plenty of eyes on the youngster.
“I have not run her through her grades even, we put her in that race at Wenty in the Millions Dollar Chase and she trialled 30 seconds dead down there in her first look,” he said.
“In the semi-final she drew box four in the guts and got a bit squeezed up.
“She has not had much racing really.
“As soon as there is a decent dog, people are always ringing up trying to buy them.”
Despite the heavy rain, Gallaway has been able to use his straight track at his property to work his team of 30 chasers.
The TAB have installed Little Zephyr as a $6.50 hope to claim the prize on Thursday evening, with the Tony Brett-trained Milligan judged as the $2.80 favourite.
From the kennel of champion trainer Brett, Milligan will jump from box six as he shoots for his fourth win in his last five starts.
Like Little Zephyr, the Brett rising star is also likely to head towards the Flying Amy Classic.
“He has got a bit to learn but he keeps stepping up and getting the job done,” Brett said.
“Hopefully, he can really shine over the carnival.
“Hopefully, he can take the step up to the next level as he will go to the Flying Amy after this, hopefully he can be successful there.”
